From 1975 to 2007, I was an Australian children’s writer. I published 72 books for kids and young adults, ranging from picture books through to the first Australian young adult novel with a gay main character. This website is an archive of my work, selected by me.

For those who already know my writing, this website contains fiction and articles that haven’t been published before. For those who aren’t familiar with my work, I suggest starting with Mr Enigmatic or Sundogs. And if you’re looking for So Gay, my survey of Australian children’s books with LGBQ characters, you’ll find it in the section headed Gay Fiction.
